Looking for the ultimate in natural flea & tick protection? Try the Natural Herbal Flea, Tick and Mosquito Control Remedy for Dogs.
Natural Herbal Flea, Tick and Mosquito Control Remedy for Dogs kills fleas, ticks and mosquitoes for up to four weeks, yet it’s safe to use on your pets and around your family when applied as directed.
How Does Natural Herbal Flea,Tick and Mosquito Control Remedy for Dogs work?
Certain plants contain compounds that give them the ability to defend themselves against insects. Natural Herbal Flea,Tick and Mosquito Control Remedy for Dogs is a synergistic blend of botanical extracts including peppermint oil, cinnamon oil and lemongrass oil. This combination of oils significantly enhances the pesticidal activity of Natural Herbal Flea,Tick and Mosquito Control Remedy for Dogs. How? Octopamine!
Octopamine is a key neurotransmitter found in insects, it is the insect's equivalent of adrenaline. It regulates their heart rate, behavior and metabolism. The unique molecular structure targets and blocks octopamine neurotransmitter receptors in insects. Blocking octopamine results in a total breakdown of the insect's central nervous system. As mammals, fish and birds have no receptors for octopamine, the ingredients do not have this affect on them... or people!
Toxic chemical pesticides have been known to cause immediate health crises in some dogs and cats, and perhaps worse, these chemicals can circulate and accumulate in our pets' bodies, doing unseen damage to vital organs that may go undetected for years. And then there is the damage these chemical residues can do to our children, ourselves, and the environment.
Natural Flea, Tick and Mosquito Remedy for Dogs is a natural alternative to the harsh and harmful chemical based flea and tick repellents.
The Natural Herbal Flea, Tick and Mosquito Control Remedy for Dogs come in three sizes:
0.5 oz/15 ml glass dropper bottle
1 oz/30 ml glass dropper bottle with included plastic pipette
3.4 oz/100 ml glass dropper bottle with included plastic pipette
Apply suggested amount once a month as a spot or stripe, starting high on the back of your pet's neck to in front of the shoulder blades. In order to help reduce the occurrence of fleas and ticks , this product is best if used year around.
Small dogs 1-2 droppers full
Medium dogs 2-3 droppers full
Large dogs 3-5 droppers full
Normally the flea remedy works right away and kills adult fleas and ticks on contact. But in some cases flea infestation can be very bad and the fleas are overwhelming. As the fleas hatch from eggs and develop from larvae, they come in contact with the product and die. If there is an unusually high amount of hatching fleas, the product may need to be reapplied. In this case make sure you put it on the body parts of your dog where fleas are most present, like your dog’s neck, back, hindquarters and belly. It is totally safe to reapply any time.
I also suggest having the dog out of rain or water for 24-48 hours to insure that the product has dried.
Shake well before using
This product has a strong herbal smell but not unpleasant. I have had some reports of reactions such as skin irritation and hair loss at the site of application, especially if used on dogs with very fine fur and skin sensitivities . In addition, the oils in this formula may temporarily discolor white hair or fur. I recommend testing the product initially by applying a few drops in nape of the neck, and wait 24 hours to evaluate any response before applying the full dose. If you do see an adverse reaction, wash your dog with a shampoo or dishwashing liquid that contains detergents, as this is the most effective way to remove the oils causing the reaction.
I do not recommend this product for cats. Unfortunately essential oils and cats don't fit. Essential oils can be toxic to cats, whether taken internally, applied to the skin, or simply inhaled. Why can cats not tolerate the oils? There are several reasons. The major one is that they cannot metabolize them the way that dogs or humans can. (they also cannot metabolize certain herbs or allopathic meds. either).
